The rival militant groups tried to break the ISIL’s siege of the city of Mareh, but the ISIL killed 13 of them.
The ISIL is trying to penetrate into Mareh city from the direction of the town of Talalin, but the rival militants have prevented it from achieving its objective.
The ISIL terrorists have also occupied the villages of Kafar Kalbin and Jabrin near Mareh city.
Earlier in May, the rival militant groups managed to capture five strategic regions in clashes with the ISIL terrorists near the town of Azaz.
The militant groups took Al-Hossein, al-Fariziya, Sheikh Rieh, Yahmoul and Jarez in Eastern Azaz back from the ISIL.
Meantime, the local sources announced that fierce clashes were underway between the militant groups and the ISIL near the village of Beel.
